‘Delighted’ Darnell points at fight and togetherness

Darnell Furlong was thrilled with Albion’s comeback win against Huddersfield and heaped praise on his team-mates for battling to extend their unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship to eight games.

The full-back netted his first goal for the Club at a crucial time in the match - scoring the Baggies’ second equaliser before Matt Phillips and Semi Ajayi wrapped things up.

And Darnell is delighted to notch his first goal in blue-and-white stripes. 

“I’m delighted with the result," he said. "It was a stressful game out there, going down twice.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game because, at the end of the day they’re Premier League opposition even though it hasn’t gone well for them this year.

“They were always going to come out fighting with a new manager and we’re just delighted to get the result.

“We controlled the game in spells, we were just a little bit sloppy to give away a couple of goals. But I think we had the bulk of the play, the bulk of the chances and we came out with what we deserved really.

“I’m delighted to get off the mark quite early. I didn’t get off the mark that quick at QPR!

“I love doing it [being an attacking full-back]. It makes you feel free.

“I know my duties are to defend and I’ll always try to do that first and foremost but when we have a lot of the possession it’s easier to get forward and it’s a fun part of the game. If I can continue to do that then I’ll be happy.

“I’ve just tried to take each game as it comes. It was a similar game at Fulham where we had to fight back. I just want to keep playing.

“Slaven said that first of all we need to stop giving away sloppy goals! But the togetherness of the group to come back and fight is unbelievable so I’m sure he’s very pleased with that.”
